Well, we know who Zac Efron wants to win for Best Actor!

The actor revealed to Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the 2014 Academy Awards that he's "partial to Matthew McConaughey."

"I worked with him on Paper Boy and he's such a great guy and his career has taken such an interesting turn and I know it comes from a really honest, hunger-driven place," Efron explained.

"I really admire him and look up to him."

But the 26-year-old was less forthcoming about his rumored role in the upcoming Star Wars flick.

"Is it true? I don't even know yet," he coyly said to Seacrest when asked if he was signed on the star in the highly anticipated (and super top secret) movie.

"I guess the Force is with me tonight," he added. (Was that a hint?! Maybe? No? Who knows!)

But all guesses aside, Efron did look pretty dapper in his tuxedo for the evening festivities. He sure cleans up nicely!
